Bloom Cafe

Copy Link

Bloom Cafe is a family affair. Pop in and find owner Saria Almaktabi or one of her family members at work. They also love experimenting with the menu, offering limited-time specialty drinks. One could come here every month and try something completely new. And for the sparkle lovers, try the Bloom Boosters — a refreshing drink with edible glitter.

Arwa Yemeni Coffee

Copy Link

Try the Yemeni coffee experience in Richardson at this locally owned and operated shop. The beans are sourced from Yemen, and the shop’s build is conducive to community — sharable coffee is the Yemeni way. 

Ralph & Rose

Copy Link

Located at North Haven Gardens, this little coffee shop and boutique is great to grab a cup at and then look around the garden center’s grounds. There’s also a tiny garden out back where one can sit with a coffee and do some inner reflecting. It also serves small bites and pastries. 

Sugar & Sage Bakery

Copy Link

This Park Cities bakery, owned by mother/daughter duo Alison and Ashley Sage Weinstein, is also a coffee shop — which makes it perfect for those days one needs a little something extra with their cuppa. It’s got a little wonderland of an outdoor area to sip in. And it roasts with beans from Dallas’s own Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters. 

Cultivar Coffee Roasting Co.

Copy Link

An OG of the Dallas coffee scene, Cultivar has a rabid following. The menu is simple but solid every single time. They have all the classics, which can be made iced for free — a bonus in the hot Texas summer. Try the Local Oat as the weather warms up. This shaken iced coffee with local honey and oat milk is a nice cool down with a caffeine kick.

Cafe Duro

Copy Link

Enjoy a quiet espresso, European-style — sitting down and chatting with a friend. This marble-laden spot on Greenville is a beautiful place to perk up your morning. And if you’d like to sit, eat, or stay awhile, customers have access to the porch of Sister next door.

JuJu's Coffee

Copy Link

Nick and Julia Rocha took JuJu’s from pop-ups in an Airstream to its first storefront in Lakewood. And they turned it into a classic, minimalist coffee shop that nails the East Dallas vibe. Try a cup brewed with beans from Eiland Coffee Roasters out of Richardson and Coffee del Rey from Plano.

The Meteor Dallas

Copy Link

At this all-day cafe and bike shop, one can get a great cup of coffee with all the hearts out of milk in it. It’s also got breakfast tacos, burgers, and serves natural wine. So yeah, you can go from a lavender latte to a brisket breakfast taco with a mimosa to a prickly pear lemonade with a chicken sandwich to a glass of orange wine and oop there’s half a day gone.

Ascension Coffee

Copy Link

Now boasting multiple outposts across the Metroplex, Ascension is a popular haunt for both coffee and wine. Order something from their extensive menu of lattes — golden milk and shroom are especially notable offerings. 

Funny Library Coffee Shop

Copy Link

The decor is gorgeous, the coffee is hot, and the opportunity for an Instagram moment is high. This little coffee shop inside the Virgin Hotel in the Design District is a great place to pop into an grab an alcove all to yourself during the day.

Full City Rooster

Copy Link

When is a coffee shop not just a coffee shop? When it’s a place like Full City, which serves an array of roasts from a lot of countries and supports local artists by featuring their work on it’s walls, giving away their books, and selling their skate decks/photography/etc, and hosting their events. It’s a community in this joint, brought together by an excellent cup of joe.

Opening Bell Coffee

Copy Link

If live music and a strong cup of coffee is the combination that does it for you, this is the spot. This underground (literally, it’s in a basement) coffee shop has a ‘90s college hangout vibe that’s eclectic and maximalist. And all sorts of local singer/songwriters perform here.

Sandwich Hag & chimlanh Coffee Shop

Copy Link

Reyna Duong of Sandwich Hag and Jinny Cho of Detour Doughnuts in Frisco (very much worth the drive) teamed up to start chimlanh Coffee Shop, which runs at Sandwich Hag on weekends. It serves Vietnamese coffee (made with beans primarily sourced from Nguyen Coffee Supply), doughnuts, and a heavy dose of activism in support of community, women- and Black-owned businesses, and amplification of the rights of disabled people.

Hola Cafe Dallas

Copy Link

This extra small Oak Cliff coffee shop, owned by wife and husband duo Jeniffer Avilá and Daniel Hinojosa, is an intimate experience. So intimate that there are only two seats, with a few more added outside when the weather permits. With beans from Avilá’s native Honduras in the grinder, coffee lovers can expect a rich cup.

Peaberry Coffee

This to-go coffee shop offers some delectable options, including a Honeycomb Crumble (honey vanilla latte), the Oat Cliff (espresso and Minor Figures oat milk), and Ginger Tonic (ginger beer, espresso, and simple syrup).
